Well technically, it has been announced so let's discuss! What do you guys think of the new controller? I think it's OK but we should be able to use the PS3 one as well. Now then,, Let's discuss!

The controller looks kinda cool.
The big issue is this rumor about locking players games to the console. To stop lending and 2nd hand buying.
If true that sucks.

It's fake, if they do that then games will have to be made until the console is discontinued.

Holiday 2013 release date. I'm not really fussed by this - way too much emphasis on "social interaction". The only thing that caught my eye was the Quantic Dream old man tech demo - that was amazing. Also Watch_Dogs looks brilliant.

Alright, I'm guessing the reason they didn't show the console is because it is in prototype or thy want that to be the main attraction at e3.

You can tell they were quietly smug throughout the whole thing. Microsoft and Nintendo will be shitting bricks right about now.

If Playstation 4 makes it so that players are required to be online just to play video games (not to mention how much it will cost to buy a standard copy), there asking for another video game crash, in fact the 8th generation of gaming consoles isn't doing well with just the Wii U alone, it's going downhill to the point where a number of those gaming companies are just asking to go bankrupt.

It was an interesting announcement. It was rumored by one source that today's meeting was probably announcing Sony's departure from the console business (relished the thought personally), but [unfortunately] it seems that Yuta Sakurai's (Nomura financial analyst) 6-year old prediction fell through and Sony is bringing forth the PS4.

It was the first time I watched a non-E3 game-related meeting live and it was pretty cool. Two hours of incredible yet at some times familiar (remember the Agni's Philosophy demo from 2012?) bits of playstation goodness, that most likely wouldn't have been squeezed into Sony's E3 2013 conference.

The controller looks okay. Still feel a bit disappointed about a couple things about it: 1. The DualShock design is still being used. 2. The controller does not appear to be of any threat to the Wii U controller (at least), in respect to only being able to play a game off TV with the purchase of a PlayStation Vita. The "Share" feature however, is a really nice idea.

As other people here have noted, even for 2 hours the info still sounded very hush-hush (even the in-meeting audience sounded less than enthused at times).

Third-party developers sounded rather excited to be developing for PS4. Chances are we'll find out more about why developers are so excited when we see Sony's E3 conference.

Meanwhile, Microsoft and Nintendo hopefully have some really good aces up their sleeves that could help slow the roll of the PS4's holiday launch.

I adore the dualshock - it's perfect and a symbol of the Playstation. I don't get peoples' obsession with the Xbox controller with flipping the stick and d-pad. Just because the Wii U is doing something, doesn't mean everyone needs to do the same. The point of getting a console is to play it on the big screen. Why do you need to play it on the portable?


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

And that racing game, and deep down. SO does anybody know, out of the games they saw, what they might get at launch? I am hoping to get deep down, Killzone and Infamous.

I just hope it's a decent price, I plan on getting it at launch!
The PS4 will not have native backwards comInstead, like with the slim PS3, we have to download them, fuck.

Why would MS be bricking it? While I think Sony did a good job today, I don't think MS is worried, I'm sure they've got a big reveal already planned and I can only assume they're going to attempt to one-up the PS4.

Nintendo shouldn't be all that scared as well, they have some amazing games coming out this year, the 3DS is wiping the floor with the Vita and most people will know that the PS4 touch screen controller will be like a watered down version of the Wii U game pad.
